Re: A Response to the May 09, 2014 Press Release by the group that called itself, “Greater Twi Community of South Sudan, USA”
United States, May 13, 2014 (SSNA) — This is in response to the unfortunate press piece that was released by a group that called itself, Twi East Community of the United States of America.
Dear South Sudanese people and the people of Greater Bor, in particular, we regret seeing such a destructive article by the said group.
The group does not represent Twi East community in the United States nor does it represent anything about the official entities of the said community and Greater Bor in the United States.
The group is made up of individuals who have long been working hard to cause disunity among the people of Greater and it is a well known entity by many people in the United States.
The content of the press release is filled with hatred, bigotry and character assassination directed toward an overall goal of causing cleavages within the Greater Bor community. The quoted statement that the group attributed to the Minister of Defense in a meeting the group claimed to have taken place between the minister and the office of Greater Bor community-USA in which the chairman, Deng Lueth mayom, is referenced ("Deng Lueth you don’t have to worry, if Nuer comes, they will start in Jalle Payam of Bor County…" By Minister of Defence, Mr. Kuol Manyang Juuk) is baseless, non-existed and a cunning work of character assassination. We call on all readers of that press release to disregard that as a baseless claim. The Greater Bor community leadership condemns that statement and the overall, unwise press release, in the strongest terms possible.
To the people of Greater Bor, be aware that groups like this self-proclaimed Twi group and many others who are doing latent damages to the unity of our people have no place. We accept nothing short of unity of our people during these critical times. The people of South Sudan, and this community included, must be united more than ever before because South Sudan needs us in that solidarity.
